    For the past several weeks, more than 10,000 Marines have been displaying
    their amphibious assault capabilities and sharpening their other skill sets
    during Exercise Steel Knight, in Camp Pendleton, Calif. The Marines are
    using this exercise as they transition from fighting in Afghanistan back to
    the essential roles of the Marine Corps. To see Maj. Gen. Bailey's full interview follow the link: http://www.pentagonchannel.mil/Video.aspx?videoid=193018

    In the wake of Typhoon Pablo, which struck the Philippines on December 4,
    the Department of Defense has been providing humanitarian support.

    Personnel and aircraft with III Marine Expeditionary Force have been
    transporting supplies from Marine Corps Station Futenma in Okinawa to
    affected areas in the Philippines, including Manila to Davao International
    Airport in Mindanao, the region most affected by the typhoon. See the Defense.gov story here: http://www.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=118794

    Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta was traveling the past few weeks, with
    stops in Kuwait, Afghanistan, and Turkey. While in Kuwait, and then also in
    Afghanistan, Secretary Panetta spent time with troops and thanked them for
    their service and sacrifice. Panetta also met with ISAF Commander, Gen. John
    Allen, and Afghan President Hamid Karzai. While on his way to Turkey to meet
    with top officials, Panetta signed an order that will deploy 400 U.S.
    personnel to Turkey to support the deployment that NATO agreed to recently
